Open Seat for Friday Night 9/14

7 posts in this topic

I'll be hitting Mille to do some night trolling tomorrow night. I have the boat and all the trolling equipment. I also have an open seat in my boat if anyone is interested in joining me and sharing gas expense from Elk River? I plan to leave ER around 4:00 pm.

Shoot me an e-mail if you're interested: trtigges@charter.net

I'd love to hop in but I'm guiding down here all weekend, starting with some pre-fishing this afternoon and evening. Have fun!

I'd love for you to join me also Team Otter, I know we've crossed wakes out there a few times! The seat is filled for tonight, but we will have to hook up another time over the next 2+ months.

I have to say, it will definately feel good, to have the tiller in one hand and the trolling rod in the other. We're planning to go out of the windy side tonight--if the wind lets us.

Enjoy your guide trips, I know you work hard putting your clients on fish!

I hope you did well. The bite down here was tough yesterday. Hopefully today they change their mind.

Still a few openings in October. smirk.gif

Sorry I didn't see your post earlier or I would have jumped at it. If you do it again on a Friday night, let me know.

Sandmannd, between now and ice up, I’ll be going up almost every Friday and Saturday night, send a note to my email address above.

Not much to report from our Friday night trip to Mille Lacs. We cut our trip short and only trolled for approximately ½ hour before sunset and ½ hour after sunset. The wind was definitely doing its job, it was blowing from the NW into the east side rocks. I chose the east side specifically for this reason, as I've had my best early fall trolling bite on the east side rocks when the wind is blowing from across the lake. This usually pushes the bait fish up onto the rocks, as was the case Friday night, the seagulls were picking off small bait fish approximately 2" from the top of the reef.

Water temp Friday night was 62 degrees when we came off the lake at 8:30. As the temps were dropping fast, I expect it went down to 60 or below by Saturday morning.

Brian thanks for joining me Friday night, I truly enjoyed your company and conversation!

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
